Yamaha BB2005
Made in Taiwan Yamaha Corp..
Trestle bridge has five independent chrome saddles.
Neck-through, mahogany and maple, rosewood fingerboard radius 500mm.
24 frets. 864 mm pitch
2 Yamaha Alnico single coil pickups.
Active preamp.
volume control, pick-up balance, Bass, Middle, and Treble all with centre detents.
Body is Maple and Neck is Rosewood.


handling is easy, fast and curls up on the 24th fret five strings.
The settings are simple, the focus of the balance poy,  and Treble, Middle and Bass knobs are handy to find the right settings.
The pickups are single coil and respond very well.
Overall this guitar is nice to play fingerstyle against slapping, which I have given up.


I use this bass for blues, jazz shuffle, when I do actually get to play.
The sound is clear, full, sustain is really good thanks to the neck-through construction.
with my H & K BK100 I sound a bit fat, and I choked it up with a compressor and a little reverb. 
I particularly appreciate the high mids and trebles of this bass.


I have had this beast since 2009.
I tried a lot of 5 strings, but I have fallen under the spell of sound and color.
The Pros:
sound in the treble and bass fullness. Big sustain, Manufacturing quality, The bridge has independent string adjustment, Ease of play.
The Cons:
The weight is a bit tiring in the long run, A humbucker for the neck pick-up might have been good.
I pay € 800 for this bass in 2009. I am looking for a Jazz Bass now.
